Madrid is the city to live in if you are looking to have a dynamic, professional, and cosmopolitan living experience, as well as begin to understand the origins of Latino culture. You’ve seen images of Spain: the running of the bulls in Pamplona that Hemingway described, a bull fight at Las Ventas in Madrid, a terraza with people sipping sangría and enjoying the late afternoon sunlight, or any number of images of its fabulous beaches. In Madrid you’ll become a madrileño taking the Metro to work, and sitting at the cafés in La Latina, and joining everyone when you go de marcha at night and become involved in Madrid’s famous night life. As Madrid attracts people from across Spain, Europe, and the world, there are a lot of adopted madrileños or gatos (cats), as they are called in Madrid, so you’ll be in good company as you explore your new surroundings.
